he's been easily our best forward this season, but he's on the third line.
There could be a couple reasons why he's playing sheltered minutes. Trotz is either trying to build chemsitry between those three because once Fisher comes back Smith is the 3rd C on the depth chart, or he's playing him less in an effort to not burn him out. I think it's a mix of the two.
